Eminent domain; commissioners. Removes the option by a land owner in a condemnation proceeding of selecting commissioners instead of jurors to determine just compensation. Under the bill, the land owner would be able to elect that just compensation be determined by a jury; if he does not make such an election, the court would make such a determination.
